The vegan lady who runs a cultured fish firm

Carrie Chan is the CEO of Avant Meats and is currently developing its first cultured fish, a cell cultivated fish maw bites as an ingredient in a snack. Cultured fish products as a response to overfishing Carrie Chan chose to be a vegan because she believes that the way we produce animal meat is not efficient and causes a lot of environmental issues. However, she knows that people do like eating meat. When she founded Avant Meats, she says, the main consideration on her mind was that there had to be a better...

Cell-based meat is real meat without hurting animals

The Turkish cell-based meat company Biftek is trying to scale up the production and lower the price of to enable serving a brought customer market in the future. However, there are also other variables that need to get overcome, such as religious concerns.

What are genome editing and CRISPR-Cas9?

Genome editing (also called gene editing) is a set of technologies that enable scientists to change the genetic code in the living cells of an organism. They make it possible to make specific changes to a particular location in the genome in a controlled way. One of the approaches is known as CRISPR-Cas9. The “Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats and CRISPR-associated protein 9”, or CRISPR-Cas9 for short, was discovered by a team of CRISPR pioneers led by biochemists Emmanuelle Charpentier...

Cultured meat: A whole different animal?

Synthetic meat grown in-vitro in a petri dish, rather than gained from slaughtered animals, has a number of advantages and could be a game-changer in combating global hunger as well as climate change. Given recent advances, cultured meat technology and cellular agriculture could be mature and market-ready within just a few years. Humans have been eating meat for nearly two million years. In the early days of our species, we supported ourselves as scavengers and hunter-gatherers before gradually refining our skills...
